And my wonderful Benjamin Bekalu is 11 years old today! We adopted Ben from Ethiopia when he was 5 1/2 years old and he is just the greatest kid. I can't believe he is 11!
Here is a pic of Ben running at the slip n slide party we had this weekend. I promise we do feed him. He actually eats more than most of the other kids! He runs like a natural but soccer is his true love. :)
|Here he is with his other true love... chocolate. This is from last year's birthday and his Auntie did it, not me. He paced himself well and made it last!|
I am TIRED. Between Josh being gone for the weekend, company coming on Saturday, a super busy day organizing and cleaning on Sunday (plus a 16 mile run), a very late night on Sunday, an extra early morning run on Monday, dentist day, and then an 8 mile track workout this morning... I am beat! I have a bit of a sore throat too (and Noah has a cold so I am blaming him). I am going to start taking it easy, getting lots of rest and tapering more since race day is now just 11 days away!!
